Audi's new slogan has a real ring to it

I can't help but wonder what it says about me, that my inaugural blog post is going to be about one of the more repulsive things I've ever seen on the internet, but nevertheless...

I was driving around earlier this afternoon and my eye was caught by this new Audi billboard (is that what we call them in England? I don't know...) which bears more than a little bit of a resemblance to Goatse. If you're unaware of what Goatse is, then trust me when I say that ignorance is bliss...And maybe it is just a coincidence, or it could be a graphic designer having fun, or maybe Baroness Susan Greenfield is right and the internet is affecting our subconscious minds. Who knows?

I didn't have a camera at the time but I made sure I had one in my car for the next time I went out and I snapped it... you're probably thinking that I could have just found the image on the Audi website, but it's not there. I sort of hope that somebody at Audi has noticed the gaffe and is quickly backpedaling.

I'm definitely not the first person to notice this, Count Libido seems to have pipped me to the post but I still thought that this might be worth pointing out.

And thus concludes my entry into the world of blogging.

See you soon.


  1. The internet has ruined things like this for me! Good catch!

  3. GOATSE! they're into those things.
